What the stars have in store for you: read your October 2018 horoscope!
September had the collective recalibrating to universal shake-ups, disruptions, and changes. Now that the dust has settled, your October 2018 horoscope ushers an urge to go deep among all of us. October 31st marks Samhain or Halloween. This is when the veil between our world and the underworld begins to thin. We are invited to dive deep into our shadows and lose that excess baggage we’ve been carrying around with us for so long.
Your October 2018 horoscope kicks off this month with Libra season. The sign that purports balance and justice, Libra asks us to investigate our stand when it comes to society, privilege, and power. Venus Retrograde happens this month too, calling us to think about our relationships. Which ones should we still be holding on to and which ones deserve to be put to rest? Confront these big questions and you’ll do well.
Just when you think everything is smooth sailing in the love department, something happens to ruffle your feathers. Watch for that tendency to run off at the mouth, Aries. Tensions can rise with Mars squaring Venus on the 10thand your flammable temper can cause a blow up you could regret later on. Rein it in.
Layer on some cool-toned pieces to help you temper your mood swings. A light blue bomber jacket or distressed denim in washed-out tones can calm you down.
Taurus usually has her head above water when it comes to love, but not even you are exempt from the trouble that Venus Retrograde in Scorpio can stir up. Love can get especially rocky from the 5thuntil November 16th. Your October 2018 horoscope recommends you ease up on the stubbornness especially if you’re attached. Single ladies, keep dating on the down low until next month.
Treat your tresses extra kindly this month. Spritz on a thickening tonic to keep your hair lush, or give your locks some volume with a sea salt mist.
Want to have The Talk with your partner? Now’s the time to get down and dirty, Gemini. Mercury enters Scorpio on the 9th, so if you’ve been trying to find the right time to DTR, figure out all the kinks in your relationship, or get to know that person you’ve been super interested in but have been afraid to talk to, now’s the best time to do it.
Let your lips do the talking all month long. Get serious with a neutral, brown-tinted tint to get him to sit up and pay attention.
Your emotions may be all over the place when October starts. Keep it together, Cancer. All the feelings pouring out of you are there for good reason. By the time the Full Moon enters Taurus on the 24th, you’ll have cried it all out and arrived at some life-changing conclusions. Decide on where you want to take your relationships next. Your October 2018 horoscope recommends you stay firm.
As the weather cools down, you’ll need to layer up. Accessorize with outerwear that’ll keep you pretty and protected. Try a light scarf or a blazer to keep you warm.
Power play and all the tension that comes with it will keep you busy all through October, Leo. Everyone knows you want to dominate the scene (in both the bedroom and the boardroom) at first glance, but not everyone knows that beneath all that bravado is a vulnerable heart. Work on your trust issues.
Change your dynamic by playing with texture this season. Try on a fuzzy striped sweater with a sheer pleated skirt. Accessorize with leather and hardware.
We get it, Virgo. We know you’ve thought things out and have figured out the best way to celebrate your anniversary, run the home, get things done at work, etc. Your opinions, while well-intentioned, can get on people’s nerves this month. Learn to bite your tongue. Other people have good ideas too. Your October 2108 horoscope asks you to have a slice of humble pie.
Soften up your look with deep peaches and berry tones on your cheeks.
Dissatisfaction is brewing inside you all month, Libra. It’s not because you’re being a brat or complaining because you can. It’s because you’re craving for big changes, especially in your sphere of relationships. You’re going to have to do some major work to get things right. But if you confront these primary pains, the stars guarantee that love will be easier for you by month’s end.
Who says you can’t wear spring colours in the fall? Pile on the pinks—your heart chakra will thank you for it.
The first three weeks of the month will be tense and nerve-wracking. But if anyone can handle discomfort, it’s you, Scorpio. You may need to be extra confrontational, especially when dealing with authority figures. When the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, be thankful you fought the good fight and move on. Your October 2018 horoscope reminds you that relief comes after feeling on edge for most of the month.
Let your alter ego rule your look this month. Wear something totally unexpected.
When things get tough, it’s easier to do a Bye, Felicia and jet off. With Jupiter conjunct Mercury in Scorpio on the 24th, you’re asked to stay and sit things out. It doesn’t come naturally to you to be introspective, but you need to do this to figure out what things aren’t working out and why. Be brave.
Your arm needs some candy. Pretty things up with a stack of bracelets, bangles, and charms.
What’s your biggest self-destructive tendency, Capricorn? This isn’t exactly the easiest question to deal with but this month is calling out to you to figure this one out. It may leave you anxious and a little fearful, but trust that you’re doing good work by digging deep into all this soulful stuff. Your October 2018 horoscope is asking you to figure things out. If not now, when?
Fall into autumnal colours with deep plums, warm pumpkins, and rich browns.
Love gets a little trickier to deal with as Venus opposes Uranus at the end of the month. It’ll do you some good to spend the weeks leading up to this, prepping yourself. Sort out relationship issues that you’ve been too lazy to deal with before. Tie loose ends. Make peace with your ex.
Invest in an accessory that will get you through tough times. Try a classic bag that’ll last you a lifetime.
You may have the best intentions when it comes to your love life, but once things start unfolding, you may find yourself veering completely off course. It’s okay to surrender control. On the 19th, allow yourself to express what you want (what you really, really want). Put it out there and let the Universe follow suit.
Anchor yourself firmly on the ground with some practical but pretty ballet flats.
